Insult to Intelligence?

Last night many gamers were subjected to what could only be considered an insult on the intelligence of gamers. GTTV's annual pre-E3 show subjected viewers to an all out hour-long assault of product placements, a fake boobed Morgan Web wannabe and a super model that could careless about gaming. It was an insult to intelligence to say the least.

Well I sure didn't tune in to see Geoff Keighleys ugly mug. I came to see two things Boobs and Games and the mission was accomplished. But I do get your point. Seriously Geoff could have been riding a unicorn and I wouldn't notice him standing next to Marissa Miller.

You wouldn't notice him on a unicorn(one of the most beautiful creatures on Earth)? GTFO! Now I know you are lying!

FanboyAttack2626d ago

A unicorn is not one of the most beautiful creatures on Earth. XD

Parapraxis2626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

No they aren't, we all know damn well Pegasuses are far more pretty.

DatNJDom812626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

a horse with a huge tumour. I personally couldn't stand seeing the poor thing suffer. Hence, the shotgun in my right hand.

Dude i have bad news for you... Unicorns

they dont exist

sorry... sorry.. ohhh... come on dont cry.

There ought to be a law against those types of productions. The superficiality of the whole thing was palpable. Like Marisa's not just a model guys, she's also a gamer. Those type of production tactics spoil the romanticism. :-( I love my games. Amanda was hotter.

Actually, the best part was the Devil's Third announcement.

If you read the Garret novels by Glen Cook you'd know that unicorns are horrible carnivorous pack hunters feared by all people with good sense. Their horns are pretty good for killing vampires in a pinch though.

homer2625d ago

Unicorns do exist!!!! The are just gray, fat, and ugly and are called rhinos.

Haha, "don't get me wrong, I'm all for big boobs."

chrisnick2626d ago

I thought it was all just...corny. Thank god for the kz3 trailer at the end.

freezola752626d ago

Sorry Geoff, your show rocks, but these gaming/event shows that they put you in, blows tremendously!! It's a travesty even... boobs withstanding.

mercenarie2625d ago (Edited 2625d ago )

Keighley with Adam Sessler, problem solved.

Gandalf2626d ago

But you know who looks good riding a unicorn?

poopface12626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

ESPICALLY THE PART WHERE ISSAC FROM DEAD SPACE WALKED OUT. I almost changed the channel right there, but I wanted to see dead space 2.

The whole show and the forced applause made me cringe, but I was happy to see the games.

I was really excited and happy to see ITAGAKI tho. I really didnt expect that.

Spydiggity2626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

is anyone really surprised by any of this? just like anything these days, this is meant to appeal to the masses. and the masses are a buncha mouth breathers that are lucky if they can brush their teeth without poking their eye out. your talking about an industry that decided it would be a good idea to have the cast of jersey shore appear with mike tyson at the video game awards. it's a joke.

Blacktric2626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

Keighley is the true definition of idiot. He keeps pumping up lame news or announcements as megatons. I did watch it today, 3 hours after they made it available on GameTrailers.com. They announced/showed 3-4 games and because of all the useless sh*t in between every announcement/video I was already halfway through. Then Geoff said we already announced "TON OF EXCLUSIVE VIDEOS AND WE ARE NOT EVEN HALFWAY THROUGH". BTW article has pinpointed the problems with the show. Two idiots with other two hoe's talking about gaming while looking at each other to correct any errors they'll make with stupid and easily hyped crowd at the back. It was a waste of time except Killzone 3, GT 5 and TFU 2 footage that we'll be seeing in E3 anyway.

Blaze9292626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

That pre-show was f'ing whack. From now on I'm not listening or falling for any of Geoff Keighley's BS hyping. Tool just wants people to watch his show. There were more commercials and IN-SHOW ADVERTISING than games shown. The whole thing was a waste of time and corny.

On a side note - nothing wrong with some McKay on the side ;)

ShepardVasNormandy2625d ago

And remember to follow me on twitter where I will be posting updates on E3 using my new KIN from Verizon Wireless.

Greyfoxdbz2625d ago

How about a unicorn with giant cans?

fr0sty2625d ago

I can't help but laugh at the fact that this article is lashing out at Spike for making gamers out to be stupid, when they couldn't spell the phrase "couldn't care less" properly...

ROFL. Now thats funny.

I watched it too. I did find it pretty cheesy.

Megaton2626d ago

GTTV is like porn with a story. You have to sit though the cornball antics of people who couldn't give a rat's ass about gaming (the story) to get to the trailers (the sex).

It's the same exact reason why the VGAs are generally mocked by gamers. It's like they've got a bottomless barrel of ass clowns to throw on stage as a distraction for the pop culture dullards they're trying to leech ratings from.

There is no place for actual gamers on TV anymore. Not that I know of.

mirroredderorrim2625d ago

Golden comment, my friend. Here is a bubble.

gumgum992625d ago

lol, porn with a story. That's a good one.
